What happened to Bishop? I love him =[

Why do da all pplz in world lie bout satellitez?

whyz do da red shift liez?

Why all pplz lie?!

I see on newz Skynet 5 British satellite system, conspiracy? I THINK SO.

The Lounge / Bishop does YouTube!

Bishop does YouTube and tries to prove that the Earth is flat!

Flat Earth Q&A / New theory! Shadow objective explained!
« on: March 10, 2007, 05:19:20 PM »
Well basically shadow object is behind starz but not moon, so it do no block stars but moon!!


Flat Earth Q&A / Why do da Earth not round?
« on: March 09, 2007, 06:31:06 PM »
I am wonder, if the Earth isnt round or flat what is the point of this forum? Basically, you liek believe the eartjh r flat, good 4 u, doesnt change da world (unless you go into GPS business, then you have to build towers all over the planet which cost u much money, so dont do it, if u work for NASA u make lots of money and all u have to do is develop photosjhop), my 4 centz.

Flat Earth Q&A / If the Earth is round...
« on: March 09, 2007, 01:56:53 PM »
... errr umm shadow on moon covered, err horizon covered, ummamaerrr timezones covered.

Any FE help plz? (BTW after all the evidence provided on this forum I am convinced the Earth is now flat!)

Flat Earth Q&A / Horizon?
« on: March 09, 2007, 01:43:08 PM »
I can see a horizon out at see, explain. (I think this is an RE winner!)

The Lounge / I steal from websites
« on: March 09, 2007, 01:34:01 PM »
This is a question that has been asked for many years, and there are some very intuitive, and some not-so-intuitive answers.

To start with... there's a horizon, meaning that the surface that one is observing from is not an infinite plane. On the clearest of days, the only restriction to one's range of sight is the horizon. There can be two explanations for this - one, that the Earth at some point just stops, as if you were looking off the edge of a table. The other is that the Earth is round. Hundreds of years ago, before the invention of the compass or sextant, precise navigation for ships was difficult, even with the stars. Ships that ventured past sight of land were often lost, and thus it was generally believed that the world simply *stopped* at the end of the horizon. With the invention of the compass, and improved map-making, people began to dare more, and with the return of Columbus from his trans-Atlantic voyage, the concept of the Earth as flat was shattered.

Further proof of the Earth being round came after the voyage of Columbus. When Newton discovered and measured the force of gravity, that number could then be tested anywhere the theory was known. Since the force of gravity is roughly the same everywhere on the globe, it could be surmised that the Earth must be spherical. If the Earth were not round, whole hemispheres would have different atmospheric pressure and significantly different sea levels. Also, pictures taken of the Earth in the last 50 years have proved absolutely conclusively that the Earth is round. These are just the arguments that don't require much physics knowledge to explain, there are others that are more technical, but I think that the simplest arguments are the best.

Answered by: Frank DiBonaventuro, B.S., Physics grad, The Citadel, Air Force officer

There are a multitude of methods in which any one can prove that the earth is a sphere. These are the most common.

You can launch a rocket to a high altitude and take pictures of the earth (which various government agencies and private groups have already done thousands of times in the past), but that isn't the most practical way. Pictures and videos taken by orbiting satellites and space stations are certainly the most definitive proof that the earth is a sphere.

But if you're not convinced, read on...

You can also observe, with binoculars, ships slowly 'sinking' below the horizon as it sails farther and farther out to the ocean, then watch them come back. They certainly didn't fall off the edge of the earth! You can also sail or fly around the world.

The Greeks discovered that the earth is round by observing lunar eclipses (i.e. when the earth blocks the sun from the moon, casting its round shadow on the moon's surface).

Another method is simultaneously measuring the length of the shadows cast by identical poles perpendicular to a flat surface that is tangential to the earth's radius at various, distant locations. If indeed the earth is round, then the shadows should all vary in length from one distant location to another, which means that the angle at which the parallel rays of sunlight struck each pole varied from one location to another. (recall the alternate-angles theorem from Geometry class) If the earth is flat, then the lengths of all the shadows should be identical when measured simultaneously, since all rays of sunlight that strike the earth are parallel. However, they are not identical, but in fact, varies in such a way that the angles indicate a spherical surface. (This was one of the earliest methods to determine the radius of the earth)

Also, keep in mind the 24 hour time zones. When it is noon in Hawaii, it is approximately midnight in the Middle East and vice versa. How can it be noon and midnight simultaneously? It is certainly impossible with a flat earth and a sun millions of times more massive.

If I were a billionaire and physically fit, then proving to you the earth is round would be no problem. I can just take you with me on the space shuttle and we'll watch with our own eyes the earth from the orbiting International Space Station.

I have heard from astronauts that there is no experience comparable as watching the earth from above.

How does my TV work without da satellite + communiations devices :(

For fixed services, communications satellites provide a technology complementary to that of fiber optic submarine communication cables. They are also used for mobile applications such as communications to ships and planes, for which application of other technologies, such as cable, are impractical or impossible.


Flat Earth Q&A / Moon Light
« on: March 09, 2007, 10:44:34 AM »
When they went to moon they put light sensor on moon, on Earth light is sent to it and can measure the moons distance away. Explain.

Flat Earth Q&A / Flat Earth? Why not cube?
« on: March 07, 2007, 01:42:13 PM »
Why do FEers think the Earth is flat? How do you know its not cube shape and we are living on one of the sides? Explain.

Flat Earth Q&A / Explanation!
« on: March 07, 2007, 12:45:18 PM »
There are also cruises which circumnavigate Antarctica at a slightly more northern latitude, and stop at the southern tips of South America, Africa, and Australia, covering distances in time spans impossible if the above map were correct.


The Lounge / Cant disprove made up explanations!
« on: March 07, 2007, 12:42:27 PM »
Cant disprove FEers, its like trying to disprove God. Something happens, they claim its magic or shadow objects or selective gravity, then they ignore your thread. REers unite!

Proof that I went to the moon and the Earth is round:

Dont put this into angry ranting as it isnt, I actually went to the moon.

Flat Earth Q&A / Why not stick to the RE model?
« on: March 05, 2007, 03:09:21 PM »
Well, why do you choose FE over RE? Whats wrong with the RE model? The FE has many more flaws, explain.

I saw Tom Bishop sitting on a rock in the garden and told me to burn things, should I?

I do not see no MooBs fool?? Help.

Flat Earth Q&A / What color ball...
« on: February 27, 2007, 03:50:08 PM »
Would the Earth be on a snooker table? I think white.

Flat Earth Q&A / I have a theory!
« on: February 26, 2007, 04:03:47 PM »
I think that one of the major FEers is infact someone from NASA or the government, this person makes up such ridiculous crap that people laugh at his/her ideas and dont believe in the flat Earth, making on conspiracy seem like its dumb!

Flat Earth Q&A / More on the MooBs!
« on: February 26, 2007, 03:32:52 PM »
So I understand what the MooBs does, but what exactly is it? Bishop.

Flat Earth Q&A / Proof that the Earth is flat?
« on: February 26, 2007, 03:22:21 PM »
Im waiting Mr. Bishop, show me some concrete evidence that the Earth is indeed flat, make sure you have this evidence yourself and have tested it on numerous equations.
